I think his first priority is a good young defenceman & that might not be available until next yr when teams need to shed salary. In the meantime a stop gap measure in a FA like Foster makes the most sense & allows some of the better prospects in Bingo to be called up & get some NHL experience.
Why would you guess that when the coach has already publicly said that whoever plays the best will be in Ottawa?

Lehner has nothing to prove in the AHL. He's ready to move on. Being the #1 in Binghamton does nothing to develop him. He's beyond the AHL level, and he needs to take the next step.
